Asking the right question
This RLO outlines why asking the right question can help in the search for evidence, and explains how to construct good questions using the PICO technique.
Types of qualitative research
This RLO outlines the variety of types of qualitative research that there are. It's aimed primarily at students studying evidence based practice and research methods.
What is a randomised controlled trial?
This RLO outlines how Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs) work.
Save the Oysters - Introducing Non-native Species to the Chesapeake Bay
Since the introduction of MSX and Dermo in the 1950’s, two infectious diseases that played a large role in the decline the Chesapeake Bay’s oyster population, several oyster hatcheries along the Eastern seaboard are working with scientists across many fields to develop innovative restoration programs. One idea is to introduce a non-native oyster from China called Crassostrea ariakensis. In this video podcast, MicrobeWorld talks about current research underway with C. ariakensis, the potentia
VIS-5D VR Animations: Hurricane Florence
The VIS-5D scientific visualization system has been extended to include an interactive mode controlled by virtual environment devices. This animation is part of a series of live screen captures demonstrating this capability.

EE 120 - Lecture 27 - Signals and Systems
Structure and Interpretation of Systems and Signals - Spring 2007. This course is an introduction to mathematical modeling techniques used in the design of electronic systems. An important keyword here is "mathematical." Subjects we will cover include continous and discrete signals, with applications to audio, images, video, communications, and control; State-based models, beginning with automata and evolving to LTI systems; Frequency domain models for signals and frequency response for systems,
Solar Storms, Discovery Channel Series
This video is a combination of documentary and speculation concerning severe solar storrms. Suitable for high school students.
Virtual Maths, Density formula simulation
Density, mass and volume interactive formula, simulation
Positive and negative predictive value of diagnostic tests
This RLO explains how diagnostic test results are a combination of true and false positive, or true and false negative.
Determining the clinical importance of trial results
This RLO demonstrates how to interpret and use clinical trial data (ARR, RRR, NNT, NNH, and confidence intervals) in practice.
Action of drugs that target carriers
This learning resource introduces carriers as a target for drug action and describes how carriers function and how drugs utilise these carriers.
"Introduction to MATLAB, Spring 2008"
"This course was offered as a non-credit program during the Independent Activities Period (IAP), which is a special 4-week term at MIT that runs from the first week of January until the end of the month. The course, intended for students with no programming experience, provides the foundations of programming in MATLAB®. Variables, arrays, conditional statements, loops, functions, and plots are explained. At the end of the course, students should be able to use MATLAB in their own work, and be p
